approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Esther's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Esther Williams comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Esther Williams - her real motivation, which describes the kind of person she is at heart and where her true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Esther Williams" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Esther a little better. This page describes the disguise Williams wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Esther Williams will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Esther has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Esther Williams very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Williams is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Esther Williams will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Williams' politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Esther Williams appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Williams is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Esther possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Esther Williams - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Esther Williams does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Esther.
Others see Esther Williams as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Williams shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Esther Williams usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Esther Williams which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Esther is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. Williams sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Esther Williams may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Esther should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Esther Williams tends to blend in with, and assume the characteristics of those around her, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe" and enjoy donning different personalities at different times.
She may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Esther Williams does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Esther's role to shake things up a bit and she may not be entirely comfortable with this herself.
